In 2009, Terian debuted in OCL known as Dynomite. His time in OCL was very brief. His debut match was on an OCL Mayhem show facing Rick the Fisherman. Dynomite lost that match, after that match, Dynomite went into the office of Danny Jackpot, and asked for his release. Jackpot granted it, and Dynomite left OCL for the first time. A few months later, Dynomite re-signed with OCL. He was placed against the local jobber there, Brian Deas. Dynomite refused to face Deas. Over the last month Jackpot kept encouraging Dynomite to face Deas. Once again, Dynomite kept refuseing. Dynomite then, once again, left OCL. He told Jackpot he really did not want to face Deas. Jackpot, however, Jackpot continued to encourage Dynomite to go up against Deas. Finally, Dynomite agreed. However, he only returned to OCL for one night only to face Deas. On Mayhem, Dynomite faced Deas. It was a close match, but, Deas picked up the win. Since then, Dynomite was so embarresed by the loss, he dissapeared from the wrestling scene for almost a year.
Time In the Independents and Legends of Wrestling
After that loss against Brian Deas, Terian decided to change his ring name, to his current one, Ryan Terian. Terian also got a new attire, some tatoos, and grew his hair into a black mullet. Terian was wrestling in local high school gyms for about a year. Terian was a champion for multiple local wrestling companies in Philadelphia, and the Philadelphia area. Terian was a local legend. On a local wrestling show, Terian revealed he was Dynomite. No body in the local area knew he was Dynomite, since Terian drasticly changed his looks. After that interview, people started laughing at him, calling him a "jobber", and a "fuck up". Terian coulden't bare it anymore, and left the Philadelphia area. Terian then moved to the Atlanta area. He continued doing his independent work on an open contract. Terian, once again, had not much luck in Atlanta. Terian then, decided to retire from wrestling. He did not announce his retirement, since no body would care. Terian then, met a fan of his at a local shop. He encouraged Terian to get back into the wrestling scene, and said that his father was a scouter for the regional promotion, LoW. (Legends of Wrestling) Terian then agreed to go to the tryout. Terian tried out against the trainers at the local wrestling school. He impressed them very much, and was placed on the main roster by owner Rob Van Dam. Terian then debuted on LoW Mayhem, still under his independents wrestling name. Terian lost constantly in LoW. Terian was then thought of by the locker room as "The Jobber." One night at a house show, Terian got into a fight with one of the wrestlers, and was fired, with no exceptions. Terian, however, was praised by some local fans in the area. AKA, the wrestling purists. Since LoW was more of a sports entertainment product. Terian then decided to be a trainer for a local wrestling school. After about 3 months in the school, Terian got a call from the WEDF board of directers, for a job as a superstar on the develpment show, DCO. Terian accepted, and has since, been a full working superstar for DCO.
